Erskine, Hall & Coe is pleased to present Jennifer Lee: Works from a Private Collection, an exhibition of thirteen vessels by Jennifer Lee. These works form the majority of a fifteen-piece group from a private collection in America, with the remaining two featuring within the current Kettle’s Yard exhibition, Jennifer Lee: the potter’s space.

This is the first time that these works have been displayed together in the UK.

Collected over a period of two decades, the earliest piece dates from 1990 and the most recent is from 2011.

Our exhibition is viewable until the 16th of August and is also fully illustrated online.

Artist ( Description ): 

Jennifer Lee was born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland in 1956. From 1975 to 1979 she studied ceramics and tapestry at Edinburgh College of Art; subsequently, she researched South-West Indian prehistoric ceramics and visited contemporary West Coast potters during an eight-month scholarship to the USA. 

From 1980 to 1983, Lee continued her work in ceramics at the Royal College of Art in London. Her pots are hand-built and are distinguished by her unique method of colouring them by mixing metallic oxides into the clay before making.

Lee has had retrospective exhibitions of her work at the Röhsska Museet in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1993, and the Aberdeen Museum and Art Gallery, Scotland in 1994. Her work is represented in major international public collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Philadelphia Museum of Art and Los Angeles County Museum. In 2008, the Victoria and Albert Museum purchased a third work for their collection.

In 2009, Lee was invited by Issey Miyake to exhibit at his foundation 21_21 Design Sight for the exhibition entitled U-TSU-WA. The installation was designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Her pots which were featured in the exhibition appeared to float on a vast pool of water behind which cascaded a thirty metre waterfall.

Lee returned to Japan in Autumn 2013 to take part in the International Ceramic Art Festival in Sasama, and was a guest artist in residence at Shigaraki Ceramic Culture Park for two months in 2014 and again in 2015.

In 2018, Lee won the second annual LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize.

Jennifer Lee lives and works in London and regularly exhibits in London, Sydney and Japan.
